Sunday Stash Bundle

Bought my first-ever fat quarter bundle, and it arrived in the mail this week.  So exciting!

I just love how it came all wrapped up like a present, with a bow and a tag and personalized twill tape.  Sigh--Moda.

Ten Little Things by Jenn Ski for Moda
Gracious, I don't think I really contemplated how much fabric is actually in a fat quarter bundle--31 fat quarters is almost 8 yards!  What have I done?

I am not generally an online fabric shopper, as my area has several LQS to choose from, as well as the well-stocked-but-not-quality-fabricked JoAnn's.  Plus, the mecca that is Fabric Depot is just up the interstate a bit.  However, I had bought a counting panel of Moda's Numbers with the idea of making it into a cloth book.  (Panel bought quite awhile ago.)  The cloth book idea featured a jelly roll of the coordinating Ten Little Things prints, also by Moda--which I just randomly went looking for about a month ago. 

several of the fabrics, gathered around a photo of the panel

I came to the realization that this fabric came out in 2012, and that fabrics just don't stay around in stores forever.  Internet to the rescue!  Didn't find a whole lot of this precut available online (in fact, when I started looking, I didn't find any jelly rolls), but a couple places had it.

And so I pounced...
Add to Cart

It has arrived: a delicious collection of dots, numbers, owls, trucks and asterisks.  In updated crayon colors.  I am smitten.

Molli Sparkles

Linking up with the fabulous Molli Sparkles for Sunday stash.  Yummy, y'all!


  1. Such lovely stash additions - enjoy

  2. what a fun post! I smiled thru the whole thing. You'll have a grand time with these. I seldom order fabric online either but there's nothing like getting a package in the mail!! LeeAnna at not afraid of color

  3. Yeah, that's a super fun collection - I can easily see having to snag the set! I'm jealous of all the terrific LQS access you have. We have a handful about 45 minutes away, ranging from small but nice to largish with a bad owner's attitude, so I no longer like going in there. Shopping online is terrific if you're working within a collection, but it is really haphazard in terms of good color coordination if you want to mix collections/brands!
